@moreorless : now this is going to make choices really interesting. I can see current 5D2 users wanting to jump to "your" 3D and first-time-FF users taking your 5D3 prediction. I consider this very business oriented and logical+1
I think it makes sense for canon to build a high MP FF camera, decrease the frame rate and build quality, and decrease high ISO performance and DR. But then throw a $4,500 price tag on it.
Then, an entry level FF that looks very much like the current 5DII except with perhaps a slightly larger sensor, slightly better AF, and improvements in high ISO and DR.....Perhaps with a decrease in build quality (if 6D). This would likely fit the $2,500-$3,000 price range.
In terms of names, I can see a 3D/5DIII combo or a 5DIII/6D combo.
As has been said above, the 7DII is easier as it is APS-C. I hope that it has better ISO performance and better DR. But I wouldn't be surprised if it is more MP/AF instead.
